Join us for a contemplative worship service on Tuesdays, December 1, 8, 15 and 22 from 8:30-9:00pm on Zoom. We invite you to observe Advent during the bustle of the holiday season by stepping into the quiet and lighting candles together on Tuesdays for some centering time of prayer and song.

Each year, we decorate the Sanctuary on the Sunday before Christmas Eve with poinsettias donated by individuals and families honoring or in remembrance of a family member or friend. Even though we cannot gather in person this year, we are continuing this beloved tradition.

Calling all 20s/30s: In past years, 20/30 Vision has come together during November for a Hallowed Friends-giving potluck of fellowship and food. This year, Thanksgiving plans are looking different for many of us, and the Hallowed Friendsgiving is no exception.

We are asking children and youth (and even adults!) to draw a Thanksgiving drawing to be included in the Thanksgiving meal deliveries. This is a way to send a special note to cheer up the recipients and let them know we’re thinking of them and wish them well.

Join Minister of Music Susan DeSelms and Seminarian Katharine Henry as they lead a fall prayer hike on Sunday, November 1 from 2:30-4:30pm (new time) at Hemlock Gorge Reservation in Newton/Needham.
